On a night when Atlanta's retiring third baseman had a tough error that cost a run and its veteran pitcher labored through five innings, it was youth that served a 4-3 win for the Braves against the sizzling New York Yankees. Rookie shortstop Andrelton Simmons drove in two runs and fellow 22-year-old Jason Heyward threw out a runner at the plate and had the game-winning RBI for the Braves, who snapped a three-game losing skid and ended the Yankees' 10-game winning streak, the longest in the majors this season. "The youngsters getting it done today," Simmons said with a laugh, thoroughly enjoying the aftermath of his 16th game in the major leagues.
